Reset what his account? You mean his account shows it’s locked in the account tab? If so; do you have a password lock out domain policy? If so; you will need to identify what is impersonating his account. From my experience it’s two sources. You will need to parse through your event viewer logs on all your DCs. You can use a utility called eventcomb to search all of them for you. It’s in a free Microsoft suite called secops; you can google and download.

 

You want to look for logs showing failed attempts 0xC000006A (Incorrect PW)  followed by a lock out (0xC000006A). 

 

1.       User has stale terminal server session that never logged off and is using his old credentials

2.       User’s own computer is running some processes.

 

1. Any services running as user’s account (type msconfig in start menu; go to services)

2. Any scheduled tasks. Start; programs; accessories; system tools; scheduled tasks

3. Is IIS installed on his workstation? Start run; type inetmgr; expand default website; properties; click directory security tab; click edit for anonymous access and authentication control. Is this running with your account?

4. Any run As Shortcuts

5. Any processes running during startup type msconfig in start menu; go to startup tab; do you recognize any processes that may be running as your account?

6. Double check stored passwords. Go to start run type rundll32.exe keymgr.dll, KRShowKeyMgr

-------------------------------------------------------What's the error
when the /disasterecovery failed? You can perform this without backup of C: or
systemstate of this computer (as long as AD is still alive) Maybe the
systemstate restore is bad or had corrupted registry. Rebuild without the system
state.

If you cannot get it to work; you always have an option of blowing away the
server object using adsiedit and just doing a new install using same name.

(bad entries for .net framework and other components) my registry or

know how in can restore data or mailboxes for the mailboxes on crashed
server using best method available.


Thanks
RD
